Week 166 – PC – Nonsense, Bollocks And Pish – Warning Strong Language

This isn’t a great start when I state, please don’t take offence at what I’m going to say!

I’ve never really ripped into PC although I believe that most of it is nonsense. PC is too close to censorship for my liking and I do believe that if anyone corrects you from saying any well known phrase that’s gender specific into something like ‘Police-Person’, they should have to call the Police-Person and Ambulance People for assistance.

Why do some take so much negativity from a bloody phrase? The phrasing that’s used negatively has become simply that, negative. Deal with the fucker who acts on it but don’t let society banish many words and phrases in case they offend. (I mean in the name of fuck, there was a news story here about a farmer who wrote to The Oxford English Dictionary regarding negative phrases for pigs. I just think he was sticking up for his lovers. Well when I say lovers, I’m not sure if pigs would consider rohypnol as a romantic meal.)

If you are Danish, you are a Dane. If you are Scottish, you are a Scott. These words have simply been shortened. But there are other nationalities that you can’t do this to.

We refer to Chinese people as Chinese but most of us here in Scotland refer to a Chinese Meal as something that has now been taken as an insult. It’s not meant as such, it’s simply a Kung-Po!

Why something is said can have fuck all to do with an insult. Unfortunately we are in times where these fuckwits don’t have the imagination to see that.

I have decided to say sod it and be un-PC. (I think PC should be used for folks who think they are so tolerant that they need to find derogatory in everything. So I reckon they are PC – The ‘P’ could stand for words like; pedantic, picky, puritan, whatever, but the ‘C’ will simply be CUNT!

So here goes, I was thinking about any reviews I’ve had and what was the worst piece of feedback I’ve ever had. Ah, so many, that I’ve become forgetful. That is if forgetful means bitter and twisted and wanting the world to curl up and die. From there I began to think on what has been said to me that has been insulting. I do think a student stating that they were surprised that I was married was one. I pointed out that I may not be a looker but I wasn’t a mutant. They said that wasn’t the problem. They thought I was a black hearted bastard who had no compassion. I took that as a slight slight on my character. I hope she got thread worms and her fingers fell off.

But that insult is nothing to the one that we all endure:

‘You’re just like me.’

That’s a doozy! And it really is normally a mutant who says that about you!

I’m all for being an individual but I read the other week that there are seventy one gender identities.

Seventy one!!

I’m at a loss. (See warning above!! PC is just about to go out the window!!) You are either male and like lady parts or female who like the boaby. I totally get todger dodgers and vagina decliners. Bisexuals are just greedy, they want their cake and shag it. Transgender and transexual, well that’s all the matter of a snip a tuck or a choice of fashion, again, I understand. Although I don’t really get a man becoming a woman who then wants a lesbian relationship. When you think on it, they have just had cut off what they have to strap on.

I also take it that we are talking about the dark sexualities, the dead boring necrophiliacs and the basting beastials. So that’s around ten! What in the name of fuck is the other sixty about?

I feel sorry for The LGB who became the LGBT and then the LGBTQ. They’ll soon be ‘The LGBTQ and sixty five other letters!

Who knows where it will all lead?

OK folks onto this weeks stories. We had two new writers for you, a stalwart a quick returner and an old friend.

Topics this week include; contemplation, a singing aid, a cat accessory, those left behind and some tribal fantasy.

As always, our initial comments follow.

 

First of the week, we had an old friend being published for the fourth time. Doug Hawley has been around the site for quite a while and it was a pleasure to publish ‘Nose‘ on Monday.

‘Bonkers! Loved it!’

Great imagination with just the right amount of weirdness.’

‘The deadpan style suited and complimented the story.’

 

L’Erin Ogle is adding to her back catalogue at a tremendous rate. She was next up on Tuesday with ‘Three Things

‘A multilayred story with many good lines.’

‘Cleverly constructed.’

‘The ending ties in nicely with the title.’

 

On Wednesday, we had the legend that is Mr Fred Foote. He broke the back of the week with ‘Liv Oh‘.

‘Wonderful writing by the master.’

‘I spent a lot of time looking up the references.’

‘This read as a fine bit of fantasy.’

 

Our first new writer was published on Thursday. We welcome Karl Miller who had his debute story, ‘The Distress Of Newly Made Ghosts‘ showcased.

‘Solid, well constructed writing.’

‘I enjoyed the ending reference how everything is changing and you can’t recall the past.’

‘Great title which reflected the story.’

 

And we finished off the week with another first timer. We also welcome River Rivers. We hope that they both enjoy their time with us and continue to send us their work.

Friday ended with the wonderfully named ‘Felis Catus Bionicus.’

‘I’ve never read anything like this.’

‘OTT and crazy.’

‘The ending would make a grumpy person on a grumpy day, grin.’

 

That’s us for another posting. I may not be here next week if the PC Police People catch up with me.

I’ll be arrested on four counts:

Daring to call a lesbian a ‘todger dodger’.

Referring to a homosexual male as a ‘vagina decliner’.

Nutting the said PC Police People and verbally abusing them by calling them all cunts!!!!!!!

    • Thanks Dave,
      There are a few topics that most of us would be happy to have a rant about and I think this is one.
      Be as un-PC as you want my friend, the world is a better place for it!!

  1. Related – “community” for any group “the Albanian four fingered community”. “Issue” for problem, because it seems, problem is too clear. Adding x to the end of group – Latinx, mx – to avoid gender (I would prefer “person”). POC – meaning whatever one wants it to mean.

    • Thanks Doug,
      It’s great to see you around.
      You got me thinking, I’d never considered the word issue as PC but you are spot on. It’s normally not a wee issue, it’s normally a big bastard of a problem.
      I think I may stop using issue unless it’s about a weekly magazine!!
      All the very best my friend.

  2. Yea, I enjoyed the stories this week – although I didn’t make any comments. ‘Felis Catus Bionicus.’ was mildly hilarious.
    Well, today I learned something new – is it true? – ‘There are seventy one gender identities.’ Well everyone to their own – live and let live, HOWEVER!
    What I find offensive is the need for people to tell me their sexual preference – I didn’t ask and I don’t care.- Or the ‘you know he/she is gay.’ NO I DIDN’T why did I need to know.
    Or the MSP’s and MPs who have to come out to tell the world – Why ,Oh why. Just do the work you are paid for.

    My usual answer is ‘that’s nice’ – hell they don’t like that.

    So today I have learned that if someone is inclined to burden me with their private sexual orientation , unsolicited , I will say ‘that’s nice, but please be more specific’. After all, which of the seventy one gender or sexual identities do they really associate themselves with.

    It is my nature not to discriminate so why is there a need to provoke an opinion from me when I have none – then for some strange reason people start to say they know what I think. Well, “that’s nice”

    ***
    for our readers who may not have seen the TV Show ‘Mrs Browns Boys’ (Mrs Brown is a man in women’s clothes must be gender 45).

    He swears often and can be obnoxious to people, until he/she was sent on elocution lessons. He is no longer so offensive and tries to be polite by saying, ‘That’s nice.’

    • Great to have such a thoughtful comment – thanks. I agree totally I don’t need to know about your private life, I just need to know whether you are decent and honourable. I just don’t ‘get’ Mrs Brown’s Boys it doesn’t work for me at all.

    • Just to annoy you James, I need to tell you that I am attracted to alcohol and lamb chops.
      Is consumeality a gender or sexuality or even a word???!!
      Thanks so much for your usual thoughtful and entertaining comments.

  3. I am bewildered. Never heard of Mrs. Brown’s Boys. It’s official: I am out of the loop. It’s been coming.
    Anyway, it seems easier to be offended than it is to offend. I think if you look deeper into what is said or written that they will usually discover that there isn’t intended . malice. This happens a lot online, where you have to hold yourself accountable. Anybody who disagrees with that is a 🔨 head. 😁

  4. Somewhere in the middle of my last comment my IQ dipped into negative digits. I guess that’s the way it goes. Goddam useless Google emoji app always makes me look as literate as a tunafish sandwich. Great…now I have insulted lunch.

    • I think you have hit on something Leila.
      Being insulted probably says more about the insulted than the insultee.
      Man, I’m making up words on these replies.
      Funny how Shakespeare does it, he becomes a genius and when I do it, I look illiterate!
      I like Tuna, or as supermarkets refer to the tins, ‘Dolphin’.
      Thanks as always, you make the world a more interesting place.

  5. Regarding the image Diane,
    The mad thing is, most would be considered un-PC by the thought Nazis!!
    (I think this one is disrespectful to those who consider crime as not being a crime.)
    Thanks as always!!!
